continus testing units

do those continus testing items that stay in the tank to monitor ammonia and ph and such work well? how accurate are they?

they suck. i have bought two diff brands, and neither one of them worked. one of them never changed colors, even when I had an spike in ammonia, and the other one changed all the time, extreme highs and lows. luckily i was skeptical enough to keep checking with my regualr test kits- otherwise i might have lost all my fish. don't waste your money!

I would never use them. I think the fun in the tank is doing the test's your self.
